Trusting Privileged Session Manager

Privileged Session Manager (PSM) is a ClickOnce application hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) that launches when users with Login Session Access to a managed computer check out the credentials for that computer. To successfully launch PSM, ClickOnce must be supported by each user's browser and the URL pointing to the application must be trusted by each user's browser. This article describes how to add the URL as a trusted site to Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Internet Explorer supports the use of ClickOnce applications like PSM out of the box. To use PSM with other browsers such as Google Chrome or Firefox requires an extension. For Google Chrome, you can add an extension like ClickOnce for Google Chrome, which is available at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/clickonce-for-google-chro/kekahkplibinaibelipdcikofmedafmb/related?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog. For Firefox, you can add an extension like Breez ClickOnce, which is available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/breez-clickonce/.
